Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2009 -- Vestara, provider of the industry's only automated pharmaceutical waste management solution, is pleased to announce that it has made another significant commitment to environmental sustainability by joining Practice Greenhealth, a membership organization for institutions and businesses in the healthcare field who are engaged in reducing their environmental footprints.

Practice Greenhealth is the leading membership and networking organization for institutions in the healthcare community that have made a commitment to sustainable, eco-friendly practices. The organization provides practical guidance, training, consultation, and business solutions to help its members in their efforts to implement environmentally responsible practices.

"We are very pleased to welcome Vestara to the Practice Greenhealth member community," stated Robert Jarboe, executive director of Practice Greenhealth. "Vestara's focus on managing pharmaceutical waste aligns perfectly with Practice Greenhealth's mission in reducing environmental footprints."

Vestara's EcoRex® Automated Pharmaceutical Waste Management System utilizes barcode technology already widely used in hospitals to track drug utilization that prevents medication errors and a proprietary, continuously updated database of more than 180,000 National Drug Code (NDC) products, to instantly categorize pharmaceutical waste at time of presentation. By automating the identification and sorting of different types of residual drugs, empty containers, and each hospital's unique admixtures, EcoRex® eliminates the human error and potential cross contamination inherent in manual sorting of pharmaceutical waste to reduce negative impact on the environment. Just as important, relevant data and an audit trail are provided in the form of comprehensive reports for client records.

"Pharmaceutical waste is increasingly causing harm to our environment," stated James Kim, Vestara's vice president of marketing. "Vestara is honored to be a member of Practice Greenhealth and will partner with the organization to further educate the healthcare community about what it can do to reduce pharmaceutical waste's harmful impact on our natural resources."

As a special promotion, Vestara will offer exclusive discounts on the EcoRex® Automated Pharmaceutical Waste Management System to all Practice Greenhealth members. For more information, please contact Jeff Lovesy at jlovesy(at)vestara.com.
